Johnny Depp may be redeeming himself after that disaster of a film, The Lone Ranger, with a frighteningly, new technological thriller involving A.I. titled Transcendence.
Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of artificial intelligence (A.I.), working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. In their attempt to destroy Will, the anti-technologist inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed – gravely injuring Dr. Caster and ‘pushing him’ to be a participant in his own transcendence.
His consciousness is essentially ‘uploaded’ and then the unthinkable begins to transpire.
Transcendence, due to hit theaters in April 2014 is Directed by Wally Pfister and stars Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean series, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,
), Morgan Freeman (The Shawshank Redemption, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Oblivion), Kate Mara (127 Hours), Paul Bettany (A Knight’s Tale, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, The Da Vinci Code, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, iron Man 3) and Cillian Murphy (Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy).
